Rainmakers: The Turbulent Formation of Cloud Droplets

Turbulent air in the atmosphere affects how cloud droplets form. New research from Michigan Technological University’s cloud chamber changes the . . .

The University will be doing remote instruction for the rest of the semester.

MTU Profs Shift Teaching and Labs to Remote Instruction

If necessity is the mother of invention, then rapidly shifting to remote instruction to slow the spread of COVID-19 is . . .

Atmospheric soot particles as seen under a transmission electron microscope are coated
      by organic and inorganic materials. Different particles collected from the atmosphere,
      even the same location and at the same time, can present very different amounts of
      coating from particle to particle. This heterogeneity has an effect on the ability
      of soot to absorb radiation.

Like Snowflakes, Soot Particles Are Unique—Affecting Climate Modeling

New understanding of modeling soot in the atmosphere underscores the importance of reducing carbon emissions.
